Details

Swimming in a pond of tequila, a duck smiles a smile of mischief surrounded by many more bottles and agave plants. This is card 35 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería. It is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

"Beautiful little print"

I love her creative and detailed little prints- this one will be a gift for a friend for Christmas. I have placed it in an 8x8 wooden frame, matted to 4x4, and it looks wonderful and classy. VERY high quality paper.

Another great little print on QUALITY paper. I framed with an 8x8 wooden frame, matted to 4x4. I also have her little dog, parrot, octopus and jaguar, and will be gifting several for Christmas. They are all great. These are detailed and beautiful.

This is a great little print on VERY quality paper. Since it is small, I used a 8x8 mat and frame, and it looks great.
